Six lanes of jumps, bumps, rails, airbags, 22′ double hit spine, and more! Locking it in as twice the size of any other park on the glacier.

including palm trees!
New features like the Giro ‘Toblerone’ are stoking everyone out!

All good things eventually have to come to an end, but what better way than with an Awards Party…
with games like water balloon toss.
Woodsy, Eddie Hicks and Mauro Nunez made things a bit more interesting
After pizza and more games, it was time for the GoPro/Giro/Skullcandy Challenge.
campers started out with a sprint to the lake…
a swim to the dock and back to the beach…
after rolling across the beach, campers were tasked with filling up a bucket using sponges…
= winning a GoPro, Skullcandys and Giro goggles!
plus more prizes…
custom Giro helmets…
and even more prizes!
Session 1 is a wrap. Thanks to all the coaches, diggers, campers and the weather (with eight straight days of sun)!
